Strawberry sauce

Strawberry sauce recipe

This simple homemade strawberry sauce is a great sauce for topping pancakes, crepes, french toast, waffles, ice cream, cakes and more. One of great things of making your own fruit sauces at home is that you can control how much sugar is added – which can also be adjusted based on the sweetness of the fruit. You can make this sauce any time of the year. During the winter you can use frozen strawberries in place of fresh ones. And during the spring/summer months it’s a delicious way to use those fresh strawberries. Homemade fruit sauces are also a good way to get kids involved in the kitchen. The younger ones can help wash the strawberries, while the older ones can help cut the fruit and stir it. My kids love making topping sauces that they can then use on their favorite breakfast or dessert.

  1. WOW. I made it this morning to top our French Toast with and it turned out delicious. So quick and simple but flavorful. The wife loved it. This will definitely be made again. Thanks for the recipe.

  2. Just made it without cooking the strawberries. I’m using it as a topping for my homemade vannilla ice cream. I also used 1/4 C honey, no added water. Delish!
